4 months

At 4 months, Jonas weighs 13.1 lbs and is 25 inches tall...he is in the 20th percentile for weight and 90th for height! And, here are some 4 month pics...
We bought a bike trailer...Jonas isn't quite sure what he thinks about it yet. But, it is so fun to be able to go on bike rides!

this is the first outfit we ever bought for our baby boy...we didn't even know his name yet

reading books with daddy...
and magazines with mommy

so big on my 4 month birthday

Yes, it is hard to believe, but Jonas is 4 months old today. I know I say this every month, but I just can't believe we have been blessed to be his parents for 4 months already. We often look at each other and say "he is really ours...can you believe it?". It is crazy how much more I love Jonas today than I did the day he was born, and I loved him more than words could describe on that day. He is such a joy. We are amazed at the developmental changes we see every single day. Just yesterday, Jonas really started grasping his feet.

Here are a few highlights...
- rolls over from back to tummy and vice versa
- arches his back to scoot or show his dislike of something
- has learned to "throw a fit" ( I am not sure where he picked this up, but it is there). He yells at us when he is unhappy about something.
- laughs all the time. He particularly loves when mom and dad do silly, embarrassing things.
- carries on conversations - even though we don't really know what he is saying
- sleeps about 9 hours a night
- drools a lot. we think he may start teething very soon
- really likes to stand. he would rather stand than sit on your lap

3 day weekend

Jonas and I have a 3 day weekend! We've had so much rain in such a short amount of time that there are flash flood warnings in effect. So, Texas Tech canceled classes, and so did Jonas' school. More rain is expected too. So, we are home enjoying the dreary day, drinking coffee and wishing Paul were off too. I think I am going to make scones. These pictures are from our front yard...

for the grandparents...

This is a special post dedicated to Jonas' grandparents...Grandpa and Grandma Snow, Gram Gram Maney, and Grandpa John Maney. Below you will find videos and pictures of what our big boy is doing now. Oh, and Jonas wanted me to tell you that he misses you and would like to see you real soon!
